This Pillar demonstrates the universality of all world religions when it comes to promoting peace and harmony in our country. The Sivananda Peace Pillar will be a source of inspiration. It reminds us that peace and love must transcend our human limitations that is so prevalent in our society today. The four ton granite pillar, 3,5m high, is inscribed with prayers from the world's major religions, and is erected in honor of Swami Sivananda and the late Swami Sahajananda, who contributed extensively towards community upliftment in our country.

"To see God in all names and forms. To serve the poor and needy, seeing God in them. To relieve the pains, sorrows and sufferings of others. To share what you have with others. To be a cosmic friend and have a cosmic benefactor, a friend of the poor, the forlorn, the helpless and the fallen, is my creed." ~ Ishwar Ramlutchman
